It's one of the best tv-shows to practice listening. The language is clear (and yet you can hear different dialects too), the questions are also shown on the screen as a text, and it's just so Swedish. You can see it here, even if you're not in Sweden: http://www.svt.se/vem-vet-mest/se-program/
yes, who knows the most information could be asked with "who knows the most?", while who knows the most useful information could be asked with, "who knows best?" My point is people would often ask with the intent of finding the person with the information they need, not the person who is the most knowledgeable. Who knows best is a useful question while who knows the most distinguishes the estimated total knowledge between multiple people. The idea that we should learn useful phrases leads me to ask, is mest the way a native Swedish speaker would ask to find the person they need to speak to for information?
I can't watch Vem vet mest anymore, they seem to have restricted viewing to people who live in Sweden only. Anyone found another way to watch it on a laptop? I think you can get an app for a smart phone, but I don't have one and am not planning on getting one, but I really miss the show... Thoughts, anyone?
